Implementing email automation with ClickFunnels is a must to use the software to it’s full potential.
ClickFunnels Etison Suite includes an email autoresponder, but that plan costs $297/m. The built-in email software that ClickFunnels has is called Actionetics.
If you aren’t looking to upgrade to the Etison Suite, there are other options out there for you. ClickFunnels integrates with a bunch of different email marketing softwares!
Using an external email autoresponder might be the better solution for you if you don’t need access to the unlimited ClickFunnels plan.
Regardless, if you are using ClickFunnels, you should be using email automation. Let’s jump into how you can set this up!
Using Actionetics for ClickFunnels Email Automation
To use Actionetics, you’ll need an active membership to the Etison Suite (Unlimited Plan). You can integrate the Etison Suite using an SMTP Service. Once that is setup, you’re able to create a fully automated email followup sequence.
This can be fully customized based on what actions the leads take. An example would be somebody who opened an email but didn’t click any links in the email.
External Email Autoresponders
Additionally, you can use an external email autoresponder, such as GetResponse. Using an external email automation software with ClickFunnels has a few benefits in comparison to Actionetics depending on your needs.
GetResponse starts at $15/m and is a reliable software in my experiences. I don’t have to worry about spam folders or emails not being sent, which is great. It’s a relatively basic email marketing software but it’s powerful at the same time. Check out my complete list of email autoresponder integrations with ClickFunnels.
I used to user Aweber, until I ran into this issue with their software but now I’m happy with GetResponse!
